Isn't November one of the best months? In South Carolina, the forest if soooo full of color right now and weather can be kind. Today we had a picnic lunch in 70 degree sunshine! Unfortunately, November is not here to stay, so I buckled down to do bee blocks this week.
Deb of Love circle called for wonky flying geese in strip blocks. Purple and teal seem to be a popular palette lately.
One thing I enjoy about bee blocks is that I can typically come up with enough scraps to make 2 without using any stash fabrics. This block used lots of strips, a scrap type that I rarely use. Win!
I also made this set of Stars Align blocks for the Grace circle this month. It was my chance to help a friend out. These blocks take some time, but gorgeously mirror that wintery mood for those ready to embrace snow and ice and all that.
I haven't often reached for the black print (Chicopee Ladder Dot) I used in this block, but I love the way the "holes" show up here and there when used as sashing! This fabric I did pull from stash, but it was worth it.
Ok, now that I've taken care of those do. Good Stitches blocks, there's really no reason why I shouldn't start a new quilt...right?
